Large Channel Count / File Size Issues

Recommended Posts

Hey Scubabeme,

The website below has tools for LOR to inject channels... especially RGB. There are also a lot of other neat tools on the site:

Grinch,

 thank you for the info. this is a great help in sequences. Next question here and then I think I will be good for a few days til something else pops in the brain. Timings: I know what the beat wizard, vu, and Tapper.

I have seen where people use Audacity with the VAMP Plugins to have audacity generate the Timings based on notes. I am wondering why one would have multiple timings in a sequence. Timings seems to be the one other gray area. I have been using the beat wizard sometimes, and others just using a .10th of a second grid (which allows for more expression).

 

thank you

Having multiple timings will take your sequence to the next level as far as being right on the beat or highlighting lets say an orchestra note which might not always fall perfect on the beat mark.  Or there is a quick repeat of a note inside the beat timing marks you made.

Try this, use the beat master to get the overall markings.  Then in one of the channel cells just right click on SUBDIVIDE TIMING  you will be presented with a box that will divide that cell column into as many sections as you want. Lets pick 4 and enter.  Now you have more control over the expression in that timing mark, where you may not need that for other cells.  If you choose the right sub division you can hit it perfect.  I just eyeball the divison and if its not perfect I use the undo and choose another number.  

Sorry I am no Music Major and I always say I am tone deaf in one ear and can't hear from the other so I rely heavily on the wave form to sequence.  I have not used Audacity for timing marks yet so I have no comment on that.  

Hope this helps.

The reason for using more than one timing grid is so you can more easily fit a sweep from, say, a seven segment arch perfectly in a timing and also fit a sweep of a nine-segment pole into the exact same time interval.

If you're already using the Beat Wizard, I'd suggest using that to create your various freeform timing grids. (Beat x 2,4,7, etc.) It's easier than subdividing timings and doesn't mess up the timing grid like subdividing does. You can swap different timing grids in and out very easily. Another tool that can very quickly become a good friend for getting an effect into a particular time frame is the "stretch to fit" paste option.

Grinch and George, thank you! I will take a look at this also tonight. 

 

Grinch: I did play with the groupings last night. I can see how this will help especially with items like trees all at red...Looking forward to starting Party Anthem in the sequencer with the new setup. 

 

George: I haven't gotten to the level you are at... but I am headed there. :) My house just won't hold a cool face. :)

 

thx

 

Kip
